“Ask Us Anything” is your opportunity to talk to Chapter Board members and ask us questions. About the Chapter or about Pennsylvania German research, history, resources, culture, traditions, etc. We may not be able to answer everything, but we’ll try to help you figure out where to start looking or who to contact. If we're all stumped, that might give us an idea for a future Third Tuesday program.
 
If you have a question that you want to ask, feel free to email it to us in advance at info@pennpalam.org. That will give us a little chance to think about an answer.

Friday, June 9, 2023 through Sunday, June 11, 2023
Internation German Genealogy Partnership (IGGP) Conference
Grand Wayne Conference Center, Fort Wayne, Indiana
Fort Wayne, Indiana has recently been chosen as the host of the International German Genealogy Partnership (IGGP) conference in 2023. This conference, which is expected to draw upward of 500 attendees, focuses on the history and genealogy of those with German ancestry, wherever they live in the world.
 
Fort Wayne has long been known as “a most German town,” with about 50% of its residents claiming German ancestry. The acclaimed Genealogy Center at Allen County Public Library (ACPL) is more than pleased to be the local host for the 2023 event, with support from local German societies, genealogical societies, and Visit Fort Wayne. 
 
The 2023 IGGP International Conference will be held in downtown Fort Wayne at the Grand Wayne Conference Center and will offer three days of German-centric presentations in multiple tracks. Attendees will learn from top presenters with advanced proficiency in their fields of study, including genealogists, authors, historians and archivists. Those attending the conference will also have the opportunity to utilize the ACPL’s Genealogy Center’s historical and genealogical materials that number more than 1.2 million items in the physical collection. The library further offers access to dozens of major databases and thousands of smaller specialty data files. Researchers will have access to the expert staff who can assist them with finding their families’ histories and stories.
